bring about a new energy frontier for the united states of america and that we would be partners with the rest of our agencies in bringing about a solution for the realities of climate change in which we face. in the last nine months, our team has worked closely with members of the white house and with congress as we move forward with that agenda. you will hear much more about this. i see our department as being the energy suppliers for the united states of america. we produce about 30% of the natural gas in the united states. we produced about 40% of the coal that we use here in america. . . ls which this department has had responsibility for overseeing its production from the public lands we also have opened up a new chapter for america in the department of interior. and that's our efforts to send up renewable energy and really to engage in the energy revolution that we see spreading across the united states of america. and so the efforts you'll hear about today are about how we are capturing the wind from the high plains and from the deserts in arizona and we are capturing the

one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans
